Georgia as a Royal Colony
Transcript of Georgia as a Royal Colony
Standard - SS8H2: The student will analyze the colonial period of Georgia's history.
Element c.: Explain the development of Georgia as a royal colony with regard to land ownership, slavery, government, and the impact of the royal governors.
From Trustee to Royal..
Rules concerning landownership, rum, and slavery were relaxed or ended during the twilight of the Trustee period and the colony of Georgia profoundly changed during the Royal period. The trustees, frustrated with the lack of economic and social success of the colony, returned the colony to the king; one year before the expiration of the Charter of 1732.
Slaves were forced to come to Georgia. With the restrictions on slavery removed, the colony’s slave population increased from 500 in 1750 to 18,000 in 1775.
